An Open Letter from a Paris BFF

6/9/2007 12:06 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Paris Hilton, Frankie Muniz, Jennifer RoveroThe following is a letter from one of Paris Hilton's best friends:

I would like to address the media regarding one of my dearest friends, Paris Hilton. I have been by her side up until she turned herself over to authorities and the last 24 hours since being put on probation. I was also
in the courtroom [yesterday] and saw a judge hand down a sentence that NO ONE in an even remotely similar position would receive!

Sheriff Baca is coming from a place of knowledge with regard to his prisons and his prisoners well-being. We should trust in him. He is a stand up man who was voted into office. He was not being generous. He was being practical and just, and speaking from years of experience on the front lines of L.A. justice. It's clear as day that her stay has impacted her greatly.

She is a forever changed woman.

The MTV Movie Awards was merely a diversion to be able to surrender in privacy and not stir up any commotion. PERIOD. Jail was on her mind, NOT a celebration!

Also, I would like to set the record straight that there was no party in motion for this weekend. When she was released she was still very upset, to the point of being physically ill -- and partying was the furthest thing from her mind. She is a loving and sweet soul with a big heart whose character has been misjudged because she was born into a family of wealth and, yes privilege. Now, I ask you to please stop for a moment and try to analyze why it is that you are so troubled by her?

Paris HiltonSurely there is a more just way that she can atone for what she has done and not for who she is.

Sincerely,

Jennifer Rovero

paris--skank of the year    

She's not being judged for being born into money.......she's being judged by her skanky actions!!! The skank has slept with anyone and everyone, she's a racist, she's ignorant, she thinks she's above everyone, and she can't get along with very many people, especially other rich women (like her pending lawsuit for slander against another socialite). No matter what Paris' friends say or do, the public opinion of Paris will not change until Paris changes her attitude and her actions (but even then I'll still hate her)

In addition to Paris, I can name dozens of "good" people who have had to suck up and do "time". It's punishment for gods sake. (Most likely Paris's first EVER punishment of any kind).

After I "add my comment", I'm done. I don't want to see or hear another word about this lowlife skank. I'm outta here.

Paris put herself in this position by showing her face into our lives in a daily basis in an effort to get publicity. How would we have known her name otherwise. Her sex tape perhaps? She is a grown woman crying like a two year old shouting MOM? IT SHOWS HER MATURITY LEVEL FOR BEING SPOILED AND IRREPOSNSIBLE IS THAT OF A CHILD. OF COURSE YOU STICK UP FOR HER IDIOT, YOU ARE HER FRIEND.

big fat, bald white guy who loves everyone except Paris    

Well lets see... with her behavior she basically tells young girls/women that its ok to make porno films, its ok to wear no underware in public, its ok to use the "n" word, its ok to drive drunk, its ok to disrespect a court order, its ok to violate a probation order over and over (i.e. drives on a suspended license twice and fails to take court ordered classes) it ok to be a spoiled brat, it ok not to take responsibility for your actions. To thoses who are given a lot, much us expected. She has some lessons to learn and this is what it has come too, she and her arrogance brought this upon herself. So your letter why dose your letter not deal with all this? Because I suspect your letter is pure BS!

Oh PLEASE !!! She was in front of the cameras going on and on about how "unjust" etc all of this was.. she should have kept her mouth shut!! She is not a "kid" she, yes SHE should have read the paperwork not her PR rep. It's called personal responsibility.

Then she keeps the Judge waiting not once but twice,( total disregard for authority) has a melt down in front of everyone in court.. where is the bravado that she has about everything else?

She should have kept her mouth shut from the get go, her Mother is a piece of work(that is another story) .

Also the LA game playing of this five minutes before midnight counts as a day horrifies me, plastic people in a plastic world.

Little Kim went to Prison not JAIL, Robert Downey Jr. violated his probation and did time in prison.. no one screamed and cried and blamed someone else... so now we find out she's a mental case?? NO really? A stripper pole in your living room, at age 26 spending more than you make? Oh and then there's the sex tape.. yeah real class act.

Although I do not always agree with Mr. Trump, if one of his kids pulled that he'd drive them to jail himself.. BET ON IT !!

She is a complete disaster, needy and can't do "alone".. perhaps she will read a book, maybe they have Dick & Jane available, it's about her speed.. because her mental growth stopped at age 7.

So will she behave when she gets out or will she violate probation if put on probation.. easy money on that.. she won't STOP, she will not behave for one let alone three years. Will you/she call it "unjust" then? She is her own worst enemy and friends that don't tell her the truth are NOT her friends.

Are you kidding me? This moron drove drunk and got probation, now if she had gone to the classes she was supposed and followed her probation she wouldn't be where she is now. She not once but twice chose to ignore her probation and drive on a suspended license so ya know what she did this to herself. Funny you mention how she was born into wealth..apparantly she feels that gives her the right to ignore her probation, do whatever the hell she wants but she shouldn't be punished for it..god no she's Paris Hilton. Give me a god damn break..she did this to herslef no sympathy here she finally gets a taste of the real world not the joke of a life she leads. Obviously being wealthy doesn't make you smart!!! SHE IS A JOKE AND FINALLY GOT WHAT SHE DESERVES!!!!

I agree with a few who posted the comment....who is this person - maybe someone who wants their 15 minutes of fame. It seems to me that if I was her "best friend" and I saw what happened yesterday and saw how the public is viewing all this mayhem, why bother adding fuel to the fire. As a friend, she shouldn't care what people say about her if she knows what she is saying is true.....or does she?!?!

I believe the reason why so many people dislike Paris Hilton is because of the way she has consistently behaved in the public eye for years. I think that T-Shirt she wore that said, "I'm Paris Hilton, I can do whatever I want" best sums it up.

She has paraded around NON-STOP in her party-girl ways living this party-girl life with nothing else of value. A woman (not a girl) with her kind of money and influence could do a little more to better her life and the lives of others than just go from one party to the next, smoke pot in public (repeatedly) and hang around on a yatch with Joe Francis letting him fondle her boobs on camera.

WHAT has Paris done to add value to this world or other people's lives? Not much it seems. So to see this self-indulgent, spoiled BRAT cry her way out of her sentence.....the sentence that SHE HERSELF said she would serve out - that all is very irritating to many people.

I am not here to say the sentence itself was fair or unfair. That is a seperate issue. I'm just trying to explain why I believe she has rubbed so many people the wrong way. Her in-your-face/I'm better than everyone attidude just reeks from her. She got away with it for so long and I believe that now there are people saying - hey, you got caught - do your time like you said you would.

What a bunch of transparent, self-centered, crap! One excuse after another. She not detested because she's of a rich family, many people are,she's abhorred because of her statements, attitudes, and behaviors (all of which are on record, I might add). She not appreciated as an individual and, with "friends" like you, it's no wonder she's living in a fantasy where she's oblivious to it. If she's your "friend", and you truly care for her, get her off the streets, out of the clubs, off the booze and drugs, and out of the public eye (try rolling up her windows). If there's actually something mentally deficient about her, let it be known and get her help instead of enabling her self-importance and unreal fantasy of herself. Your "spin" is falling on deaf ears in this country and much of the world.

Yeah Right    

Nice try, sweetie. If she's "mentally troubled" enough to be released from prison, then she's "mentally troubled" enough to stay home from the MTV awards. That was a last hoo-rah of freedom, no matter what this friend says. Of course she's troubled...it's JAIL! You cannot escape the system, and that's all she's trying to do right now. I like how she says, "ask yourself why you are so troubled by her?" It's because she's a racist spoiled brat and every stupid thing she's ever done has been caught on camera for the world to see! If she doesn't want to be treated this way, she should try to act like a decent lady and not a spoiled, talentless crybaby. Take your punishment...suck it up...and move on! Jesus.
